A hernia is a protrusion of tissue that occurs when there is a weakness in the abdominal wall. Over time, it can worsen and the hernia will rarely go away without treatment. The procedure usually takes around 30 to 50 minutes depending on the type of hernia surgery you have. Patients will have either open surgery or keyhole hernia surgery and will usually make a full recovery in around two weeks.
